  • Op-Ed: World ignores mass rape of Hindu women and girls in Bangladesh
    by Rachel Avraham on November 8, 2019 at 4:52 pm

    One must conclude that all of the government-inspired rapes that target Bangladeshi Hindu women merely because they were born into the wrong faith community constitute a form of state-sponsored terrorism. Recently, it has been reported that a series of human rights abuses have occurred in Bangladesh.  In a recent interview, Mendi Safadi, who heads the […] The post Op-Ed: World ignores mass rape of Hindu women and girls in Bangladesh […]

  • Trump, Iran, and the Foreign Policy of Bluster
    by Scott Monje on November 6, 2019 at 9:39 pm

    Referring to the latest crisis between Iran and Saudi Arabia, President Trump said that he is not interested in going to war with Iran. I believe him. He has not shown an interest in starting new wars (although he has been quite willing to escalate ongoing ones on occasion). The real problem here, I believe, […] The post Trump, Iran, and the Foreign Policy of Bluster appeared first on Foreign Policy Blogs. […]

  • Why Hong Kong Really Matters to Americans
    by George Paik on November 4, 2019 at 8:36 pm

      The ongoing pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong put the question directly to Americans: just how important is freedom to us? There can be no mistake that the demonstrators aim for democratic rule, that they have reason to expect it, and that China denies it to them. The formal structure of the Hong Kong government, […] The post Why Hong Kong Really Matters to Americans appeared first on Foreign Policy Blogs. […]

  • The Separatists
    by Richard Basas on October 31, 2019 at 3:49 pm

    Some of the strongest nations in the world today were created by separating from a larger nation. While many of these separatists often formed rather large nations themselves, the basis for separatist movements often came from a mix of power and the feeling of being excluded from forming their own destiny. The modern versions of […] The post The Separatists appeared first on Foreign Policy Blogs. […]

  • Op-Ed: Has US President Donald Trump become a paper tiger?
    by Rachel Avraham on October 30, 2019 at 2:14 pm

    In the wake of the hasty US withdrawal from Syria, the lack of a US reaction to Iran’s attack upon Saudi Arabia and Trump refusing to assist the Iraqi protests, many people in the Middle East claim that Trump is a paper tiger who says many things against Iran but does not have the courage […] The post Op-Ed: Has US President Donald Trump become a paper tiger? appeared first on Foreign Policy Blogs.

  • Development of renewable energy in Africa: continent’s future as the world hub of green economy
    by Marta Oliynyk-Domochko on October 29, 2019 at 3:26 pm

    Electricity is an important condition for the reduction of poverty and economic growth. The development of agriculture, education and technology demand sufficient and continuous electricity supply. The situation in Africa is fundamentally different. The shortage of energy significantly impedes the continent’s development. Approximately 70% of Africans don’t have reliable access to electricity. According to the […] The post […]

  • The Olvidados
    by Richard Basas on October 18, 2019 at 3:13 pm

    The people of Hong Kong know that if they become ignored or forgotten, they will be subject to many rounds of dehumanization followed by oppression and possibly violence. They are very aware of their place in the world, and they also know that in this world we have had genocide and a Holocaust and that […] The post The Olvidados appeared first on Foreign Policy Blogs.

  • The Turning Tides of Egypt
    by Abukar Arman on October 17, 2019 at 2:12 pm

    Overcoming tyranny is neither easy nor impossible. The Egyptian people know this very well as Egypt is still living through a decade of hope and disenchantment. In that defining period, Egyptians have deposed a corrupt despot- Hosni Mubarak. They elected their first president—Mohamed Morsi—in a fair and internationally monitored election. And within 365 days, they […] The post The Turning Tides of Egypt appeared first on […]

  • Op-Ed: Why does the American media ignore the desecration of Hindu gods in Bangladesh?
    by Rachel Avraham on October 16, 2019 at 3:26 pm

    According to the World Hindu Struggle Committee, ahead of the Hindu Durga Puja holiday, over 20 Durga Pratima idols were vandalized in different areas of Bangladesh.  However, there has been a total media blackout on this news.  Not a single newspaper in English has covered the desecration of over 20 gods ahead of a Hindu […] The post Op-Ed: Why does the American media ignore the desecration of Hindu gods in Bangladesh?

  • Op-Ed: Why Americans should support the new Iraqi Revolution
    by Rachel Avraham on October 11, 2019 at 3:52 pm

    The Iraqi people want to return their country to its rightful owners.  We should support them in this endeavor.   In recent years, the Iraqi people have suffered immensely under tyrannical regimes.  But now, the Iraqi people have had enough.  They want free elections and they want democratic change.  Furthermore, they are willing to fight as […] The post Op-Ed: Why Americans should support the new Iraqi […]

  • The Star Wars Myth of Missile Defense
    by Richard Basas on October 2, 2019 at 2:09 pm

    Back in the 1980s there was the impression that technology and the United States could do anything. President Reagan announced at the time that the United States was developing a laser based anti-ballistic missile system that would be able to concentrate light energy onto a moving target in orbit and destroy intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) […] The post The Star Wars Myth of Missile Defense appeared first on Foreign Policy […]

  • Op-ed: Turn Putin Inward
    by FPA Administrator on September 30, 2019 at 5:38 pm

    Seeking to merely “contain” Putin is not enough.  We have been outplayed, outsmarted and outmaneuvered in Europe, the Middle East, Venezuela, Africa and the Arctic. And at home. Point by point “cost imposing” measures against Russia have not worked. And simply repeating the pattern of reacting, deterring, responding, defending will not work.  Moscow–minimally as a […] The post Op-ed: Turn Putin […]
